So, I've been working on only the first part of this pattern because I seem to be decreasing. Here is the first part of the pattern:

cable panel (over 42 sts; rep of 24 rows)

Row 1 (RS): Ch 43, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each of the next 19 chs, dc in each of the next 4 chs, sc in each of the next 4 ch, dc in each of th next 4 chs, sc in each of the last 10 chs, turn (42 sts)

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn.

(This is where I get lost)
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in each of the first 19 st, fpdc around each of the next 2 dc 2 rows below, sk next 2 sc on the last row (always skip single crochet behind each front post double crochet), sc in ech of next 2 sc, rep from 3 times, ending last rep at ** in each of last 9 sc, turn.

Row 4: Rep row 2.

So this is where I get lost Row 3 when I fpdc, its not always around a dc since i have to skip 2 sc in the previous row. so its fpdc, fpdc - sk 2 sc - fpdc (around dc), fpdc (around sc). (make sense?) And at the end of Row 3, it is not specified how many sts there should be left because its seems to be decreasing, however, this whole part needs to be repeated 5 more times. I thought I had it, but I dont. Anyone have the pattern? Anyone willing to help me out?

So I made this pattern up to Row 4 and it works fine - I think your problem is in knowing which sc to skip.  In Row 3 it says sc in first 19 stitches - at this point there will be one sc before the dc of the previous round - when you do your fpdc, you reach your hook over that sc and into the dc.  Then make your next fpdc in the next dc.  Then it says sk next 2 sc in last row - this is where you go back to the sc you reached over (which is behind the fpdc's) and count that as your first skipped sc plus the next sc - then you make 2 sc.  At this point you will be at the next dc's so make your fpdc's and then look behind them to find the 2 sc to skip.

When you get to the end of the row you should see that your fpdc's are on an angle and not straight up and down - that's what is going to give you the cable look.

Make sense?  If not let me know and I'll try posting pictures that may help.
